Armani Prive Iris Celadon launched in January of 2017 as part of the Prive Collection and focuses on the iris flower and its penetrating character. It features top notes of aldehydes, bergamot and cardamom; middle notes of iris concentrate, chocolate and mate absolute; and base notes of patchouli, musk and ambrette seeds. The quality of the iris in this fragrance is quite phenomonal and creates ones of the most gorgeous iris fragrances I've ever smelled. Iris Celadon is an eau de parfum, edp.
Review of Armani Prive Iris Celadon
Colognoisseur - "The powdery quality of iris comes surrounded by a cloud of aldehydes and cardamom. These are not the hairspray aldehydes instead they are more like wispy cirrus clouds of aldehydes adding some lift to the powdery face of iris. Mme Salamagne uses mate to bring a green focal point to the development into the heart while also shaping the powdery into the more floral. There is a good few minutes where it feels like the mate is chiseling away the powder to find the flower underneath. When the floral character does arise, she sprinkles it with a delicate coating of cocoa powder. It is an interesting transition from flowery powderiness to a gourmand version of the same effect. She finally plants the rootiness of iris deep in a fertile base accord of patchouli and ambrette. Now the powder and the floralcy recedes to leave something which reaches deep into the earth."
Perfume Posse - "Armani/Prive Iris Celadon has an almost buttery smell/feel to it after the open. Patchouli has more of a presence than I expected, but not in a bad way. It’s a milder effect on the chocolate than Serge Lutens Borneo, which is all good. Love Borneo, but the patchouli is overkill for me in it. Nicely done. So basically a very iris buttery Borneo. I really love it. It’s subtle and doesn’t amp as far as projection."
